    5100'S ALL AROUND WITH 885 COILS AND LIGHT RACING UCA UP FRONT. 1.5 AAL IN THE BACK. SPIDERTRAX SPACERS. IPOD ADAPTOR. SEXY WIFE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT!!
    Hey guys I got an issue that just developed after i rotated my tires last week. Ever since then my truck wanders or drifts all over the highway. The set up I have is LR UCA's and OME 885 coils up front with 5100's all around, an AAL in the back and Goodyear MTRs. I did look at my tires and they are wearing evenly. Do you guys think just another alignment is order or is there something else that could be wrong?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Did you rotate only front to back? If you swapped sides it can cause this which you describe. If so, it will get better as the tires wear in to the new rotation, but it will take a while.

    Check your tire pressure... Sounds stupid, but will throw your rig all over the road if there is a significant loss of pressure in one or more tires. And its an easy fix.
